York Festival of Ideas 2021

York Cares is delighted to be involved in the York Festival of Ideas 2021. 

We are promoting our Fun With Numbers programme, through which parents and children will be able to play a number of games including our Honeycomb themed board game, Connect 4 Bingo and Guess My Number. There are videos of each of the activities  in order to help get a better understanding of how they work. 

We have also worked in partnership with the York & District Beekeepers Association and Nestlé. Together we have delivered talks on bees; what an innovation process is and how you can include bees as part of this. Primary schools within York can also take part in an exciting  design competition for a Nestlé beehive enclosure fence.

You can find out more about the competition through the following link: Keep Calm, Innovate and Bee Yourself Competition | York Cares In order to help with the discussion of values, we have included a number of examples which groups and teams may find useful.

Nestlé, The York & District Beekeepers Association and York Cares will be attending the Bee Yourself! ‘Ask the Experts’ session on 4 June  to answer any questions you may have about bees, the innovation process and the fence competition. 

We look forward to seeing you then!
